2017-19 Session
That this House calls on the Secretary of State for Transport to undertake a review of the Airports National Planning Statement which supports the construction of an additional runway at Heathrow Airport exercising powers outlined in the Planning Act (2008); and believes that since the statement was first adopted there has been a significant change in circumstances particularly the adoption of a target of net zero for UK emissions by 2050 and the declaration of an environment and climate emergency following the findings of the Inter-governmental panel on Climate Change.
